Default Abnormal front disc wear pattern

Hey guys,

I noticed a weird brake pattern on my left driver's side front rotor today. I recently had Hawk HPS pads and stainless lines installed with Super blue fluid, and the were rotors turned. That was about a month and a half ago.

Today was the first time I have really dogged the brakes since the installation, enough such that some fluid apparently spilled on the caliper was smoking off when I stopped. The rotors were quite hot (duh), even after a minute or two of driving at lower speed down a long driveway. The pattern is deep enough to easily feel, maybe one or two thou deep/built-up -not sure which- already. I haven't noticed any sound or shudder.

I was planning on going to the track next week, so I'm hoping this is a simple thing.

Anybody have any thoughts? Pics below!
